        That's kind of strange, what brand Did you use? I make this with a couple times a year and It has always bubbled well for me.

        Do you have hard water or use a water softener? Maybe the chemicals in the water neutralize the bubbles?

        I used bottled Spring water when I made mine, not sure if that made a difference or not.

        Also I noticed that no one asked, how long did you let it set? usually recipes containing multiple ingredients like this have a resting period of 24 hours or so.

      Re: Use Soap to get Rid of Deer & Rabbits!

      Another remedy I have heard is to use human hair and scatter around your plants/trees. Have your barber or hairdresser save the swept up hair from the shop and save it for you. This may sound gross...
